I'm surprised by huge amount of high reviews for this powder. Pros: - it's completely invisible, exactly how setting powder should beCons: - it badly brakes me out each time I'm trying to give it a chance (I have very sensitive skin) - it isn't long lasting, it requires couple of touch-ups during the day- it makes my reddish skin tone look ashy (it oxides a lot after 2 hours)- it dries out the skin

This is a mattifying powder that helps to take away shine and oil. It does a pretty good job at doing that. You can use it as a setting powder or touch up powder. The texture is a bit hard and dense, not as fluffy as careblend or sheer select. There is little pigment so it deposits very little colour. I used this as a touch up powder (I use careblend light plus to set my foundation).I'm NC 20-25 oriental yellow skin and medium dark is more suited to my skin tone. I also have it in medium but I would say it's more suited to NC 15-20, as it looks really white and pasty on me. The colours run very very light.My problem with this blot powder is that it kind of makes my face look a bit grey and ashy. There's not enough yellow pigment in blot powder so it looks really weird on my face. It has very little pigment but it is still noticeable on my face. You can tell I have a layer of powder on. It's hard to describe, but I feel like it makes my face appear a bit duller. With my asian skin tone, I have to use a yellow undertone powder otherwise it will look really off and noticeable.I have dry ageing skin with rough texture and fine lines. I feel with blot powder, it makes my skin look even more dry and cakey. It doesn't sit as nice on my skin. It's not the powder fault, it's more like my skin type and skin tone isn't suited to this powder.

MAC foundations and face powders (aside from blushes) just do not work for my skin type. After using this for just a couple of days my face broke out with tiny white bumps on the top of my nose and on my cheeks. I stopped using and the bumps are gone. I also felt like after only a week or so I started to get hard pan and really had to work my brush into the product to get anything onto the brush. BTW I spot clean my brushes after each use, so it's not like I was using a dirty brush. This is going back and I'm sticking to my tried and true Loreal True Match powder.

I don't know if my skin type changed or I just didn't pay much attention until recently, but this product is just okay for the price. I wear it over Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet. In the morning I set my makeup with Chanel's loose powder. I buy the Blot Powder just to keep me matte throughout the day. It only keeps me matte for an hour or two before I have to reapply. The constant touch ups seems to cause a cakey look.I will try setting my makeup with this powder to see if that will help avoid caking. But if that doesn't work, on to the next product!Also, I am about an NC15 or 20 (max), and the light is WHITE! I recommend going a shade darker than you typically would.

WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!For reference, I have very oily skin with dry patches around my nose, and I have an Asian complexion. I've only used this product in cold-warm weather so not sure yet how it holds up in hot weather. Oh my goodness, I cannot contain my happiness that I've finally found a powder that can control the oil slick party that is my face. For years, I had been using the Rimmel Stay Matte powder and I was relatively content with it; it was affordable and got the basic job done. However, after my most recent repurchase, I found that either Rimmel changed their formula or my face was just becoming too much for it to handle because the Stay Matte powder was only keeping me matte for 30 mins to an hour before my face turned oily, oilier than usual. Plus there was glitter in the formula when there wasn't any before and I don't like glitter in my face powder. So I decided not to use it anymore and find a better product.I bit the bullet and forked out the extra cash for this MAC Blot Powder and gals, I have to tell you, it was worth. every. penny. It is 1000x better than the Rimmel Stay Matte powder ever was. This kept my face matte all day and even after about 8 hours, I still didn't need to reapply! I took my makeup off after that, so I don't know what the staying power is like after 8 hours, but I'll come back and update this review when I do find out.I use the shade Medium/Dark but the powder is very sheer anyway and doesn't add much colour. I apply this with my Zoeva 106 Powder brush and it is very natural looking, doesn't look cakey at all. It also doesn't emphasise the dry patches on my face.A little goes a very long way so I'm sure this whole compact will last me a really long time. But I definitely will be repurchasing.

MAC Blot powder is a staple for SOOOOOO many people - make up artists and regular people alike. I use Light and it is terrific - just not cheap.

My fave blot powder! This stuff is great- you only need a bit and it lasts a fair while depending on how oily your skin is. A compact will last forever. My only gripe would be the lack of range in color, but that wasn't a problem for me.

I threw this out before i even used up half of it. At the beginning it does it's job, it absorbs the oil. Sadly, i find myself having to constantly touch up and apply more of this product to absorb the oil. By the end of the day, i look like a mess. It cakes up in all the wrong places and i found that the powder is pretty rough (not the kind that feels weightless and invisible). Overall i was extremely disappointed in this blot powder, you'll be better off with just setting powders.

Blot powder is a great way to sop up oil on your face during the day without reapplying makeup. It doesn't leave your face a cakey mess. I use it to touch up my face when i use my studio fix.
